Brushing Up on My Bird Death Humor

You know me. I love a good bird death joke as much as the next guy who thinks birds are delicious. But someone had better call Homeland Security because we've got a LOOSE CANNON at livescience.com.

Hahaha, wait what? I think I missed the joke. Let me retrace my steps: bleeding to death, being blown into a craggy cliff, blinded by dense fog . . . oh I get it! Because fog is . . . nope, lost it. Let's keep on reading, maybe it'll become more clear.

Now we're cooking with laughs! In fact, this reminds me of another joke I heard. It was about a dog who got caught in a bear trap (like the cartoons) and apparently dragged the metal contraption 50 yards through a dense field of thicket, stopping halfway across to drink from a puddle of water, before bleeding out. I mean, that must be a really funny story because I'm crying – like when you laugh really hard, or that inexplicable tightness in your chest overwhelms you. I don't know if I can take any more of this zaniness!

Listen, livescience.com. I get that writing about birds can sometimes get boring. And then all the editors get together and are like "Bird story brainstorm!" and because the weather was nice this morning and someone brought in donuts, you're all kind of giddy to the point where someone is like, "Can you believe this story about birds flying into mountains?! It's like (sticking arms out to simulate wings) vroooom, splat!" And the managing editor is like, "I think you've got yourself a thesis!" Then everyone else is like, "lede, deck, nut graph!" and other stupid publishing words before Jeanna Bryner ends up back at her desk with a little powdered sugar on her fingers, still kind of chuckling at Phil's bird impersonation, and starts writing about how all this these birds flying to their death is HIGH-larious (that one's a freebie, livescience.com). But next time, let's leave the bird corpse humor to the bird corpse humor professionals in Britain, ok?

People have harked on about it for decades, so most people think they find it funny, or they are not fitting in with the crowd.

Remove it entertaining, and certainly not any laugh out loud funny in places, not out.

Why do you claim that it's funny - seriously, stop deluding yourself.

I am very happy for posting on this blog on how a great spell caster helped me to bring back the love of my life.
I know there are lots of women like me out there who has done so much to have back their Husband, I am here to tell
you the answer is right here. I sincerely believe if there are up to five spell casters like Dr. Oduwa this world would
be a better place, I have seen people complaining on how fake spell castes promised to help them but couldn't. with
Dr Oduwa I tell you your problem is already solved because i experienced alot when my Husband and I had been apart for
4years and I couldn't bear living without him, I have tried everything to have him back but nothing was working until I
saw numerous testimonies about a spell caster call Dr Oduwa on how great his work is. I contacted him immediately and follow
the step that he ask and in the next 48 hours my husband called me and was eager for my forgiveness and that he wished
nothing more than to have me in his arms forever. I filled so much joy and happiness that I found Dr Oduwa. I hope you
all here will find this testimony of mine and get your husband back in just 48 hours Oduwa contact is
droduwaspellhome01@gmail.com you can also call or whatsapp him on +2348136354191.
